My orchidarium and some of the orchids I've bloomed.

This is not my favorite plant since both
plant and flowers seem rather stiff and awkward to me. Masdevallia naevia is from Ecuador and belongs to a group of Masdevallias
that have rather large, spidery flowers, section Caudatae. The name "naevia"
refers to the purple spot at the base of the dorsal sepal and means
"birthmark." The plant is 10 cm tall and the flowers are also 10 cm
held well above the foliage.
